New Yorkers rally against hate in Union Square


Roughly 100 New Yorkers rallied against hate on Saturday night in Union Square, hours after a neo-Nazi maniac plowed his car through a crowd of peaceful marchers in Charlottesville, Va.

Many held signs such as “Racist coward in the White House = racist cowards in the streets” and “End White Supremacy” in the dusk protest.

Some protesters urged President Trump to take on white supremacists.
